I am in love, but with a dead poet.

I am in love (with a dead poet). After my android tablet was stolen, I needed something to read my ebooks from Amazon on. I ended up buying a Wifi kindle, because it was cheap and easy to read outside on a balcony for example.

The kindle is really light and cool. When you turn it off it shows a picture of a famous author. At the moment, it is showing the poet Emily Dickinson. I think I love her. However, in the past I have owned a tape of someone reading Dickinson's poetry. I wasn't too keen on it. I hope she wouldn't expect me to listen to her poetry. What if she asks me for my opinion about her verse? I will just pull out a tablet of Viagra and say "this is the only poetry I care about."
